The State Cross Country carnival was held on Thursday 16th July at Bundoora Park. The State’s best runners were present with each age group having between 80 and 100 competitors including 7 MGSC students representing the Southern Metro Region. MGSC’s day started off incredibly as the Under 13 team won the gold medal! (The team competition is where the five selected student’s scores are added together to produce an overall time). This means that MGSC had the 5 fastest Under 13 girls in the State. A huge congratulations to Millie Belleville (9th), K.B (16th), Teiki Waata (33rd), Holly Tysoe (53rd), and Maddie Atkinson (55th) for being MGSC's first State Gold medallists in a number of years.
Next up was Lucy Burgess (Year 9) in the Under 14 event where she finished in 45th position which was fantastic as at one point she wasn’t going to make it due to being stuck in Bali because of Mount Raung erupting.
Last up was Emily McCarthy (Year 10) who had not represented MGSC at State level before and finished in 13th position in the Under 15 event. Emily has been training consistently throughout the year and her fitness has improved to a very high standard. Well done to all our competitors and parents who have followed their daughters throughout the carnivals this year. Lastly, a big thank you to Mrs Jackie Mathews for coordinating the SMR and State carnivals. Go Mentone
